From the Back of the Book:
Punin - the name alone makes eyes shine: for the researcher, scholar and wizard because of its scientific hoards, for the merchant because of the wealth, for the rogue and the beggar precisely for the same reason, for the mercenary and warrior because of the numerous caravan routes to the south that must be protected, for the jester because of all mighty personalities which romp about here conceitedly.
Reason enough to visit the merry royal city for the birthday festivity of the Prince Selindian Hal of Gareth, count of the fertile valley of the Yaquir. It will not take too long to have your heroes dreaming of the sweet wine, the fiery Almadanis and the Reconquista of the land occupied by the heretical Novadis to the south of the Yaquir. However, the honourable river has seen so many cultures come and go, some of them have even been become mythical.
